Sooooo I was supposed to publish this yesterday but didn’t have the chance to edit the photos. I took the photos before I went out each time, so these were what I’d wear day to day. I created 2 looks here, basically using the same shadow placement, but one with liquid liner, and another with… Read more »
There are 4 items I need to show you and I’m nuts about 2 of them. Like, I LOVE IT nuts. So, I want to tell you about them first. Just Browsing Brush-On Styling Mousse (RM65) 24-hour long-wearing brow mousse is my absolute favourite. It tints, tames, fills in even my sparse brows. I never thought… Read more »
This is a product I thought would be interesting – and confusing. I first thought it was skincare, but after testing, it’s more like a face primer which is more makeup than anything else. Then again, there are skincare benefits like brightening and collagen inducing, but many new generation makeup nowadays are hybrids. So, I’m… Read more »
I’ve been meaning to put up a few posts but I could never get the chance to take photos and edit them. That’s the part that consumes the most time for me. So one day, I just took an hour off babysitting, and took some much needed photos when the sun was cooperating. Now, I… Read more »
I’m wearing mink coat on my lashes, yo! Hahaha! Backstory – I hardly wear false lashes. I love the idea of them, especially on my fine and sparse lashes, and I have a few of them in my drawer for special occasions but those occasions are far and few between. Also, my inexperience in false… Read more »
Happy birthday to me! I am 37 years old today. Wow. If I live until 74, I’m smack at the midpoint of my life at the moment. Thinking back, it’s also funny how priorities changed. My 20-year-old self had NO idea. LOL! If you noticed, my blog posts have been sporadic and I have a… Read more »
Oops, today’s stash shopping is up a little late, but better than never eh? This is going to be short and sweet, so let’s get to it! I have been neglecting many of my eye palettes for a while, and one of them is the Naked 2. I bought it because I loved taupes and… Read more »
Know when to rest. Listen to your body. That’s what I’ve learned from the past couple of months. I’ve been training pretty hard for a while, 6 days a week, crazy intense cardio (HIIT and Tabata), crazy heavy lifting, and the improvement to my strength and stamina kept me going. I was hooked! Then, maybe… Read more »
Do you remember my post on the new Estee Lauder liquid lip potion in Cold Fire? It’s here if you haven’t read it. There are 12 shades available in Malaysia, and I managed to get the swatches. However, Naughty Naive is missing from the swatch, so here are 11 swatches in total. … Read more »
I was de-cluttering and found an old eye shadow I bought because of Lisa Eldridge. She seems to have the ability to make me buy all sorts of things I don’t need. Anyone here with the same problem? I’m much better now though. This is one of the products she said she loved on eye… Read more »
Sunday Sharing: Makeup Looks
Today’s sharing is on makeup looks. Makeup trends are usually not for everyone, and those worn on catwalks are sometimes, really just for theatrical purposes. However, these few caught my eye. Something that can be adapted for us mere mortals. Not daunting at all, but very pretty. What say you?
Bring Back the Bouncy Youthful Skin with L’Oreal Youth Code
This post is much overdue. I also broke the cardinal rule of blogging – the pictures are taken after I’ve used up half the bottle! I didn’t plan on talking about this, but after using for one month, I decided I had to share. The L’Oreal Youth Code pre-serum was launched some time late last… Read more »
Fancy some UV Protection in a Compact?
** Warning, 1000-word-count post!! Did you know that we have to re-apply our sunscreen every 2 hours? It doesn’t matter if you’re wearing SPF100, ladies. The sunscreen you applied in the morning will not be protecting you much when you go out for lunch later. Hyper pigmentations like sun spots and freckles can be due to… Read more »
Sneak Peek: Dior Addict Extreme
I can’t wait for April. Why? Well, it’s the launch of Dior Addict Extreme lippies in Malaysia, of course! I haven’t been so excited about a range of lipsticks before, but these look mouthwatering! I am immediately taken by the shade worn by Kate Moss. I like the makeup too, extended cat eye, wispy lashes and… Read more »
Quality Interrupted: MUFE Aqua Creams
It is no surprise that Make Up For Ever Aqua Creams have been getting raving reviews. There were so many positive reviews online that I couldn’t wait to get my hands on them. There is no MUFE retail counter in my city, so fellow blogger Sukie offered to help me get it. She got it… Read more »
FOTD: Jekyll & Hyde with Dior Bleu de Paris 254
No, it’s not Halloween. It was an afternoon when my hubby came home, asking me to model so he could test out his latest version of his DIY beauty dish. So, I went to put my makeup on and whack! I somehow (can’t remember how, exactly) messed up my black liner. Instead of removing and… Read more »
Monthend Randomness: LOVE, my declaration.
It can get boring writing about cosmetics and skincare all the time. I might just slot in something called monthend randomness, just for fun. It will be something totally random, silly or just a snippet of what happened in that month, or something sarcastic just to poke fun at life, and something that probably will not make… Read more »
Sunday Sharing: Online Shopping Love!
Today’s sharing is a little different. There are quite a few of you who asked me where I got my makeup from. Well, to tell you the truth, the city I live in isn’t exactly huge enough to have all these variety of cosmetics. Rather, they usually pop up like mushrooms in Kuala Lumpur. I… Read more »
It’s a big tool: Ecotools Bronzer Brush
I’m a late boomer. I also believe in the phrase Better Late Than Never. I’ve always heard of Ecotools but never really tried it before probably due to the price tag and the brushes being synthetic brushes. I never liked the feel of synthetic brushes because they feel ‘plasticky’ and not as comfortable on the… Read more »
